About the Communications Department

Media Section PicWelcome to the Molloy Communications Department! Our stimulating, multi-faceted program includes valuable hands-on experience and academic training. We will guide you through the dynamic interplay of communication theory and practice and, then, we’ll show you how to effectively translate the skills you learn into professional employment or graduate study. Students also do an exciting internship at prominent media, new media, public relations, and other companies.

The Communications Department offers majors in Communications (either a Media or Professional Communications concentration), New Media, and Communications/Childhood Education. These programs will develop and enhance your speaking, listening, writing, and critical thinking skills. Facilities available to the Media concentration include a HD television studio, HD location-shooting equipment, and digital editing systems. The Department also offers minors in New Media, Media, Professional Communications & Journalism. To view course information, click here & to view our department brochure, click here
